Recommended Posts

I took amirt recently and i use to think all the teen Sikhs at the gudhwara sahib were inspirig just by looking at them me being the same age as them. i thought they were awesome sikhs i thought they did naam simram, read gurbani hardout, stood up for sikhi and were tough guys.

But i found out that half if not all these TEEN sikhs are so.wimpy (so sorry in saying that there gurus sikhs i shouldnt be talking like this) they think there tough by taking photos of themseleves with.there sleeves rolled up haha idk so weird they dont listen to katha, i confronted them me being there fellow sikh brother i told them to sit in the hall and stop taking photos of each other, they didtn listen at first and talked back disrepectably because they thought they were tough ithere little group, i gave them a angry look and they got up straight away.... They have nothing agianst me were.mates but i seem to stay away from them from.that day...

I thought these types.of singhs and kaurs were.only in my.gudhwara

Then i found this fourm and saw all these weird posts.. WHATS HAPPENING TO US MAN I THOUGHT WE WERE SUPPOSE TO BE TOUGH ???????????

What you have said is sadly quite true. But I think the thing is we have these really high expectations of them guys, walking around with long gatras and bana, but the western singhs are nothing compared to india singhs. Even singhs my age, as in 16/17 are like soldiers in India, and here some are so femenine. Anyways, taksa/good nihang singhs are great. Just forget the youth in these out of india countries. Most take bana and gol dastar for jokes here, they think they're hard/bad boys but there empty inside...most of them...

Although i understand exactly what you see and mean and have to say that i agree.

true say its called the western influence -no seva, no willingness to do hard work, lazyness bone idle not getting up at amrit vela, all day on the internet. Basically a goreh with a dumalla, but some are chardi kala amonmgst the youth, those that sit in the divaans cross legged for hours or do seva cleaning up, it is in this way that you attain the real Sikhi

It's just kids wanting to belong to something exclusive --- makes them feel special. For some it is about hanging out with friends, having a good time, etc. I don't know I was never like that when I was their age as I took it all very seriously (without being a stick in the mud), and I also didn't like the "youth club" vibe most of the young Singhs were trying to create. To me it seemed they were just resuming the kind of behaviour they exhibited at school during the week, rather than thinking "Okay, lets get serious about Sikhi". The impression I got was they thought the job was done when Amrit was taken.

There wasn't a "them and us" attitude back then as much as there is now as well, in terms of those who had taken Amrit and those who were cut-hair. There was a lot more brotherly love especially as, most if not all, the monae wanted to - one day- become Singhs. Nowadays, if this site is any indication, those days are long gone.

There definitely wasn't any mingling of the sexes --- that's for sure. Even the teen Gursikh bibiya were no-nonsense back in the day. There was no sidling up to any of us with "Veer Ji" etc. In turn they were respected for that big-style, and none of us ever entertained changing that status-quo.

I blame Facebook for all the current bakwaas. And the Internet.... and mobile phones. :giggle:

Waheguru ji,

This can be true for alot of them, but not all. Sometimes such thoughts do come into my mind, but then I think maybe it's their age right now. Age could be a big thing too. But you know not everyone is like that. I know lots of SERIOUS Gursikhs who do not watch TV, listen to music, have no manmukh friends and absolutely love Guru Sahib and Sangat! Honestly, there are alot of Gursikhs who are not like that. Do Ardaas to Guru Sahib ji so that you can find those ones.

Even if such things exist, why dont you just focus on the positives ^_^ . Forget the things they do that arent really Gurmat and be inspired with how much Kamaai they do so that you motivate yourself more and more. That is more beneficial isnt it? :)

I see a lot of Sikh youths these days with big tattoos of khanda and dangly things from their cars. They're "flashy". Most are moneh but some have the appearance of gursikhs. They remind me of the past when people wanted to join khalsa fauj for the looting and fighting rather than for Sikhi.

Sikhi isn't about the external. It is about the internal. It's not about showing people how much you're into Sikhi - all that is part of haumai - ego. Do not be dissuaded or upset by them. Stay true to Guru Ji. Be that awesome example to set to others. Walk the True Path and inspire others to do so.

I remember once my goreh friends saw a Singh friend of mine, and they started all the flirtiness with him, calling him a hardcore gangsta, yet he was in the the full sikhi saroop. I mean to say even goreh find Singhs attractive with their dumall and beards. Now, whenever these goreh talk about guys they're always mentioning singhs and that singhs are perfect etc. Im not like that about guys but have to listen to them and what they think of a singh is exactly what the original poster said earlier. These goreh think singhs are cool and laid back but this impression is made by them singhs, they could change their ownn impression if they wanted, but I guess they like all the attention.

    • Us Sikhs think that our respect from doing good deeds. However, it is actually from fear that we got our respect.  As Machiavelli said "it is better to be feared than to be loved' A little bit of fear goes a long way.

But due to the recent turmoil in Afghanistan by the Taliban, the Indian government has canceled all visas and announced that they will travel to India.   New Delhi:  All IndiaAsian News InternationalUpdated: October 24, 2021 4:37 pm IS The India world forum (IWF) and other humanitarian NGOs wrote a letter to the Prime Minister Office (PMO) and senior officials of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) seeking early evacuation of stranded Hindu and Sikh community citizens from Kabul (Afghanistan). "Sikh leaders and NGOs including Gurudwara are receiving multiple distressed calls from Kabul from Indian nationals and Afghan nationals of India origin," Manjit Singh GK, former president of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGPC) in s letter dated October 20 said. "Most of them are yet to receive their e-visas in spite of having valid visas earlier and travel history to India. Approximately 100 Indians nationals, including children and spouses and 222 Afghan nationals of Indian origin are seeking assistance from the government of India," the letter further read. Indian citizens and Afghan nationals of Indian origin previously have a visa valid for three years. But due to the recent turmoil in Afghanistan by the Taliban, the Indian government has canceled all visas and announced that they will travel to India. Only e-Visa can be considered for traveling to India from Afghanistan. "This is in regard to our earlier requests addressed to the Government of India for issuance of visas to Afghan nationals belonging to Hindu and Sikh community i.e. minorities. Most of our community members were holding valid visas but unfortunately, on August 25, the earlier visas issued by the Embassy of India have been invalidated," a letter of the president of Guru Singh Sabha Karte Parwan, Kabul read.

    • https://tribune.com.pk/story/2326183/modi-doesnt-budge-on-kartarpur Modi doesn't budge on Kartarpur Indian side of the corridor has remained shut despite Pakistan’s leniency in allowing Sikhs to visit Asif MehmoodOctober 24, 2021 LAHORE: Neighboring India has left no stone unturned in exposing its lack of commitment to its constitutional commitment of religious freedom and the government’s stubbornness in allowing its Sikh population to use the Kartarpur Corridor is further proof. Since its inauguration ceremony nearly 2 years ago, the visa-free border crossing has mostly remained closed owing to Covid-related travel restrictions. However, even when the Pakistani government has shown leniency, to allow Sikhs from across the border to visit the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib using the corridor, the Narendra Modi administration has not reciprocated it. Most recently, on the death anniversary of Guru Nanak arrangements were made for Sikhs who wanted to attend the three-day rituals taking place at Kartarpur but Pakistan’s counterpart kept mum on if they would open their side of the corridor. Now with the birth anniversary celebrations of Sikhism’s founder on the horizon, Guru Nanak’s devotees residing in India see no hope of being able to attend and pay their respects which forms an integral part of their religion. Sardar Jinderpal Singh, who resides in Amritsar, a city in Indian Punjab, told the Express Tribune that he has been trying for months to come to Pakistan to just get a glimpse of the Gurdwara but he has been consistently shunned. “I contact the Shiromani Committee and the immigration officials of Kartarpur Corridor regularly to inquire about the reopening. Not soon, is all I get in reply,” Jinderpal informed over a telephonic interview. Purposefully curtailing Sikhs like Jinderpal from performing their religious rites ties into the Modi administration's conservative agenda of making India a Hindu state, a fact which weighs heavily on the community. “We got access to our holy site after 72 years of prayers and now the Indian government is actively avoiding its responsibility of opening the corridor when it has relaxed every other superspreader related restriction,” an irate Rajinder Singh Ruby said. Rajinder, who is the manager of the Golden Temple, a Sikh holy site in Amritsar, is amongst a significant number of people who believe that India is ruining a symbol of peace by rejecting Pakistan’s consistent attempts at accommodating Sikhs to perform their religious obligations. These beliefs do not come as a surprise owing to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) stance of isolating Pakistan whether it is through targeted disinformation campaigns or malignment at international forums vis-a-vis Kashmir. Read Sikhs for Justice releases new map of Khalistan Sardar Amar Singh, Head of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee, who is also overseeing the arrangements for the birth anniversary, while talking to the Express Tribune said, “our government has reopened the corridor before as well but it seems like our Indian counterparts are bent on not letting us reunite with our families across the border.” This hostile attitude by the far-right government against its Sikh population was first seen at the infamous farmer’s protest held in India earlier during the year in which aided by its supporters Sikhs were demonised and labeled as separatists working for Pakistan. Despite being pitted against their countrymen by their own ruling administration’s nationalist ideology, Sikhs like Ramesh Singh are hopeful of a miracle. “I pray daily that the Modi administration listens to our pleas and reopens the corridor so that my wife and I can fulfill our lifelong wish of visiting the holy land that Guru once used to walk on,” Ramesh told the Express Tribune. Separate arrangements While the Pakistani government might not be able to fulfill Ramesh’s wishes for the corridor being open from the Indian side, it has made separate arrangements to ensure that at least some Sikhs can still be a part of the celebrations. The government will issue 10-day visas for up to 3,000 pilgrims from across the globe including those across the border. Sikhs from India will be allowed to enter through the Wagah border and will then be taken to the Nankana Sahib. After attending the main function on November 19, pilgrims will be given tours to other Gurduwaras across the country.
